-----------------------------------

AUD: shnid=3732

Source: FOB Nak 300/CP4's (Pair) + Sennheiser 441's (Pair) > Sony Mixer > Sony D10 Pro
EAC'd and Shned - Estim8ted@shakedown.etree.org

-----------------------------------

hansokolow's notes: The SBD was squeezed, song by song, to match the DAUD. The SBD cuts out at 3:36 in Drums for a tapeflip, and comes back in at 4:04. For some reason the DAUD fades out at the start of GDTRFB, then fades back in, backed up a few seconds, so no music is lost. I removed the fades.

This was the last show of one of the greatest tours the Dead did in any era. This was also the last spring tour for Brent. The sound is the best I've heard of this show(especially for the venue). I remember Phil and some others teaching his son to walk backstage.

Subject: Take You Home
The highlight of this show was Brent singing, "I Will Take You Home." The Space/Drums seemed especially chaotic to me that night. When he started that song it was just purely beautiful and brought tears to my eyes. At that time my little girl was only 3 years old. It really struck a chord with me. Good show!

A fine, fine companion piece to the previous, better, night @ the Omni -

Set 1 is pretty remarkable throughout, save Brent's goofy We Can Run...there is a searing energy that propels everything, the highlight for me being undoubtedly that Phil-led bounce of Sugaree - just listen to how they maintain that balance when the jam really gets going!

Set 2 is more of a mellow ride; Estimated really comes off best in propelling this thing foreword - love the deconstruction going on in Space and GDTRFB has some fun vocal play from Jerry.

So, a decent show, fun, confident through a lot of the first set and many fine moments through the second. Crank it up as an evening soundtrack - this matrix is fabulous and allows us to hear the crowd contribute to Jed and, of course, that NFA fade...

A decent sounding tape from The Omni without 10 layers of "mud" and Dolby on it ?

Could it be possible ?

"IF I had my way"... There'd be a boxed set of all the Omni shows from '88 thru '94... The boys often had moments of greatness there, but Omni shows are treated like bastard children at a family reunion through most trading circles.

I'm not sure why this is...

But, perhaps the "Dead never played well in the South" myth remains.....

It's NOT true.

This is the legendary Grateful Dead that we've heard of, not the burned out jumbly version people joke about. If you've ever experienced the vibrating rainbow machine in your own head, you know what I'm talking about. Listen to this tape loud with headphones! This is one of the best sounding recordings on the archive...thanks Hans! Great work!
